Comedy ‘Run From Your Wife’ at Huntington Hills Playhouse

RFYWPR

Be sure to catch the WORLD PREMIER of the American Version of “Run For Your Wife,” onstage now until October 18, 2018, at Hunterdon Hills Playhouse. This hilarious, world-famous farce by Ray Cooney revolves around a day in the life of hapless but lovable John Smith, a metro area taxi driver. Smith has two lives, complete with two very different wives, Mary and Barbara, and a very precise schedule for juggling them both. He manages to keep the sham alive without arousing suspicion because of his astonishing ability to adhere to exacting timetables. But on the day the play takes place, he gets caught up in a mugging which knocks his schedule askew by a couple of hours, leading to the brakes suddenly being applied on his slippery lifestyle. Add two ambitious detectives, a few helpful neighbors and an overeager reporter to the mix and you have a hilarious case of mistaken identity, sexual innuendo, and fast moving, side splitting comedy that aptly serves its purpose to entertain the audience from start to finish.

The brilliant cast includes Dario Caudana as John Smith. The two wives, Mary and Barbara, are played by Anna Laura Strider and Katie Leonard respectively. Greg Schweers plays Detective Porter, Joseph Ferraro plays the Newspaper Reporter, and the two neighbors are played by Patrick May as Stanley Gardner and Greg Driscoll as Bobby Franklin.

Onstage from September 6 – October 18, 2018 Matinee shows: Monday thru Saturday 11:30 am – 3:30 pm Saturday Evening show: 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm Sunday Afternoon show: 2:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Premiere Stages to Present World Premiere of Liberty Live Commission Black Tom Island (October 11-21)

1

LibertyLive_Logo

UNION, N.J. – Premiere Stages at Kean University will present Martin Casella’s Black Tom Island October 11-21 at Liberty Hall Museum (1003 Morris Avenue, Union, N.J.). Originally commissioned over a two-year cycle through Premiere’s Liberty Live Commission, Black Tom Island will feature actors Damian Buzzerio, Mason Hensley, Jenna Krasowski and Bart Shatto. Producing artistic director John J. Wooten directs.

Based on an actual incident that took place in Jersey City in 1916, Black Tom Island explores the first documented terrorist attack on American soil through the lens of a fictionalized Slovak immigrant and his wife who may or may not be involved in the attack. The play is the recipient of the 2017-2018 Liberty Live Commission, a unique partnership between Premiere Stages and Liberty Hall Museum that supports the development of new plays that explore the rich and complex history of New Jersey. Over the course of two years, Garden State playwrights are given dramaturgical and artistic support, along with a $1,000 commission, to create an original play to be staged at Liberty Hall’s historic 1882 Carriage House. Past commissions have included plays by Deborah Brevoort, James Christy, and E. M. Lewis, showcasing New Jersey history from the American Revolution to the eve of World War II.

Martin Casella_color_1MBPlaywright Martin Casella is an actor and writer perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Marty Casey in the 1982 classic, Poltergeist. He served as director Steven Spielberg’s assistant on Raiders of the Lost Ark, and his writing for film and television includes projects for HBO, CBS, ABC, Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers. Mr. Casella’s plays include The Report, Beautiful Dreamer, and the GLAAD-nominated The Irish Curse, published by Samuel French. He recently completed the teleplay for the film The Land of Sometimes, starring Ewan McGregor and Helena Bonham Carter.

As the founder and producing artistic director of Premiere Stages, John J. Wooten has developed and directed numerous new plays, including The Beautiful Dark, The Good Counselor and Follow Me to Nellie’s, all of which were honored by the American Theatre Critics Association. Earlier this season, Mr. Wooten directed the critically acclaimed premiere of Craig Garcia’s Linger, winner of the 2018 Premiere Play Festival.

“While the attack on Black Tom Island happened 100 years ago, the play’s subject matter is surprisingly topical,” stated Mr. Wooten. “And what makes Marty’s study of an immigrant couple’s acclimation to America all the more fascinating is that it is based on a true story, and is effectively dramatized against the backdrop of a lost New Jersey island.”

The accomplished cast includes Damian Buzzerio, previously seen at Premiere in By the Water, Sharyn Rothstein’s moving play about a family impacted by Hurricane Sandy; Mason Hensley, whose distinguished regional credits include the Sunset Theatre, North Carolina Symphony and Lincoln Center Education; Jenna Krasowski, whose recent projects include ms estrada at the Flea Theater and Across the Park with the Araca Group; and Bart Shatto, recently seen on Broadway in the Tony-nominated War Paint opposite two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone.

I'm very excited to sing my first concert with Opera at Florham! I've only heard great things about Opera at Florham and can't wait to be a part of it. My favorite selection has to be "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific. I'm such a fan of this music.

Disenchanted! Opens Friday, October 5th at CTG

25 (1)

The Chester Theatre Group presents Disenchanted! starting on Friday, October 5th and extending for eight shows through Saturday, October 20th. Performances are Friday and Saturdays at 8:00 and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $25.00 with a discounted price of $23.00 for seniors over 65 and students under 18. Tickets may be purchased online at www.chestertheatregroup.org.

Have you ever wondered what happened to your favorite story book princesses after their supposed “happily ever after”? Well, DISENCHANTED, a new musical comedy by writer and composer Dennis T. Giacino, answers the question. The honest voices of “disenchanted” princesses take us through their journey as they attempt to take back their power. With wit, cleverness, and fast-paced humor, Giacino creates a burlesque vaudeville show of catchy and contagious songs about self-acceptance, battling the dated messages little girls have been fed by society for centuries about who they ought to grow up to be. Rather than perpetuating the dainty, boy-crazy ideal of femininity, Giacino turns these fairytale characters into real women with real voices which need to be heard. Please note that this is not a children’s musical. It contains strong language and mature subject matter.

The Off-Broadway production of Disenchanted! played to sold out houses, rave reviews, and earned several NYC award nominations including 'Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical' (Outer Critics Circle Awards), 'Best New Off-Broadway Musical' (Off Broadway Alliance Awards), and two Lucille Lortel Awards nominations ('Best Lead Actress' and 'Best Featured Actress').

JCTC’s Series Explores How We Do & Don’t Connect in Today’s World

Multimedia Art Installation Opens Connection – JCTC’s Series Explores How We Do & Don’t Connect in Today’s World

Technology connects people all over the world, yet why do we so often seem disconnected to our communities, families and each other?

Jersey City Theater Center (JCTC) launches its 2018/2019 season with Connection, a series of visual arts, theater, dance and readings that explores the truly modern conflict of pervasive isolation in an era of hyper-communication.

JCTC selects a topic global in scope yet relevant to a community, then explores that theme through multiple art forms, including theatre, dance, readings and visual arts.

The Connection series opens with an immersive art installation at Merseles Studios in conjunction with the 28th annual Jersey City Art & Studio Tour (JCAST), October 4-7 New Jersey.  In keeping with the spirit of the studio tour, Merseles Studios resident artists will have their studios open to the public during the JCAST weekend.

The installation – Collaboration – is a site-specific, multimedia collaboration between Kati Vilim, a Jersey City-based, abstract artist and Thomas Lendvai, a Brooklyn-based sculptor.
On Friday Oct 12, JCTC presents an Art Talk on Collaboration, featuring Kati Vilim and Thomas Lendvai.  

merseles-studiosjpg-554f4617009bfc3fThe installation will be featured at Merseles Studios for the duration of Connection series, which concludes with The BOX: Connection Edition, November 30.

For Collaboration, Vilim has coded original software to produce digital animation then using multiple projectors these abstract images will be projected throughout the art gallery at Merseles Studios. Lendvai’s geometric sculptures – made of wood and wood-based products – will be positioned to solid counterpoints to the vivid, multicolored images made from light.

According to Vilim, the use of nonrepresentational images induces a nonlinear dialogue between sculpture and light, removing familiar reference points from the viewer, encouraging them to consider their own perceptions of the theme of connection. “The limitations of consciousness hardly let us see how the fabric of reality is interconnected and tied to us,” said Vilim. “Art and music merge with us on a deeper level, letting us feel and discover many layers of this connectivity.”

Collaboration not only means an ever-changing exhibition of multiple, ever changing light patterns having a dialog with the stationary sculpture, but also incorporates the gallery space into the art itself. “I felt for some time that the ‘Connection’ exhibit had to be ‘off the wall’ or just not another exhibit of art pieces that are hung on a wall,” said Lucy Rovetto, Visual Arts Coordinator, JCTC. “I wanted to push the idea a bit further by having the space become the canvas. For Collaboration I want people to ‘connect’ to the art and to each other in new and different ways.”


DEAD & BURIED -- Behind the Scenes with Laura

‘Play Like a Girl: The Amazing Life & Times of a Band Named Fanny’ commissioned by TWO RIVER

image002

It is considered by many to be the greatest all-female rock band of all time. Its members were pioneers—all four composed, sang, and played their own instruments, in the face of a music business determined to exploit them, and in a time and a world incapable of accepting them. The band lasted four years, from 1970-1974, but has never received the recognition it deserved. “One of the most important female bands in American rock has been buried without a trace,” David Bowie told Rolling Stone in a 1999 interview. “And that is Fanny…. They’re as important as anybody else who’s ever been, ever; it just wasn’t their time. Revivify Fanny. And I will feel that my work is done.”

Now, the story of Fanny—June Millington (guitar, vocals), Jean Millington (bass, vocals), Alice de Buhr (drums, vocals), and Nickey Barclay (keyboards, vocals)—will come to the stage in an original musical entitled Play Like a Girl: The Amazing Life & Times of a Band Named Fanny, commissioned by Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ. Play Like a Girl will be written by Jessica Hagedorn, based on an original idea by David Crommett.

The foremothers to all the women rockers who have followed—including The Runaways, The Go-Go’s, and the Bangles—the women of Fanny were brilliant musicians, songwriters, and performers, on par with the best of rock’s golden era.

“Fanny was a showcase for the swagger of long-haired, bell-bottomed, fierce femmes at the dawn of the women’s liberation movement,” NPR’s Ann Powers wrote on February 14, 2018, in appreciation of the recent release of Fanny Walked the Earth. They wrote and performed at a time when sexism, racism, and class discrimination were pervasive. Nearly 50 years later, Play Like a Girl: The Amazing Life & Times of a Band Named Fanny recovers Fanny’s music, and the times and the lives that created it. It is a celebration of rock, of survival, and most of all, womanhood.

“I’m delighted to be working with the Two River Theater team on such a timely and exciting project about the trailblazing, all-women rock band, Fanny,” says Hagedorn, who was born in Manila, raised in San Francisco (where she had her own band, The Gangster Choir), and now lives in New York.

Play Like a Girl: The Amazing Life & Times of a Band Named Fanny has been commissioned and will be developed by Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey. Since 2010, the theater has produced the world or American premieres of 13 original plays and musicals (five of them commissions) including Be More Chill by Joe Iconis and Joe Tracz, which is now playing a sold-out Off-Broadway run and will move to Broadway in February 2019.

'Hope Throws her Heart Away' play reading at The Women's Theater



Join us for a reading of a delightful play! 🎭
Parsippany Playhouse
1130 Knoll Rd Lake Hiawatha NJ


Starring Nancy Kutzer, Valerie Stack Dodge, Alexa Teebo.
Directed by Patricia Durante
$10
Womenstheater.org

For non-conformist Hope, being grown up is nothing she expected. After stumbling through childhood and school, adulthood only brings even more uncertainty-- an expedition without a map. The more she pushes, the more life seems to push her back. What’s left? Fake conforming? Forget ever fitting in? After a road of disappointments Hope discovers that defeat and loss actually might be stepping stones to the fulfillment she seeks.
Finding an identity can be a life-long search.
The story of a woman’s search for identity in a random-seeming world.
As the role of women continues to change, a non-conformist struggles to create her life.

A woman tries to be all things to all people, only to learn the person she needs to please is herself. 

Hope Throws Heart Away is a play about the puzzle of growing up after growing up-- compromising and holding firm, standing out and fitting in, self-doubt and resolve. As the title character Hope tries, fails, falls and pushes forward, she finds that tumbling through a random life might occasionally…start to make sense. 

HOPE THROWS HER HEART AWAY is like a series of staged blog entries –snapshots of a woman’s life from an awkward childhood to adult uncertainty and then finally a ray of self-content. 

For HOPE, life never is never easy. As school and peer pressure wear, Hope shapes herself according to expectations: the reciting student, the flustered friend, the agreeable date. By adulthood, she’s a lost woman trying to be all things to all people. Hope’s search for herself again is the journey of HOPE THROWS HER HEART AWAY.
Join us for a reading of a delightful play! 🎭
